Ask me about genie plus.. live

Over the past couple of days we've dabbled with genie plus. I've learnt as I've gone so thought I could help others?

Feel free to ask away

I think DHS is the worst to be honest. We were only going to be there until 2pm as had to pick up our hire car.
On the dot of 7am nothing after 2 for SDD. First time for smugglers run was 11.45 so we only ended up being able to book one for the whole day. In the mornings the 2 hour booking time only works from 2 hours after the park opens - not 7am as I thought.

We tried to rope drop SDD but the line was already 80 mins at 8.35. So we walked on to TSM and smugglers run. We had bought ILL for ROTR and that I think was worth it as the line was 3 hours long at midday

Jeezo... so suppose to get any value you would need to plan most of day especially later in the day. Never managed to get on SDD was always 80 mins plus waits any time been there and wouldnt wait that long. No sure what will do maybe buy it for Monday and then see how goes.

Thanks.

Everyone can book G+ rides at 7am, onsite and offsite. It's the 2 individual lightning lane rides selections that can be booked at 7am by onsite guests, but not until park opening for offsite guests.

I didn't really understand in full till I used it. I think the new system suits people that do whole days in the park. We don't. We like to rope drop then have lunch and go and relax in the afternoon. We then return in the evening for something to eat or fireworks

Have you used it in MK yet? We like to have a similar routine where we go in the morning, come back to the resort for a swim and then go back out for the evening (although not sure how late our evening will be with a toddler now). Did you get any options to book something popular in the morning?
